Pours dark brown, barely translucent, with a thin tan head. Smells of coffee. Has a strong coffee aftertaste. Not a bad porter. I’d hoped for more, but the ash-like taste on the tongue is just too much.

Advocate_Ames (442) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours jet black with a beautiful bubbling dark khaki foam head that sticks to my glass. The aroma is of dark roasted malts, chocolate, sugar sweetner, mild hop character, and possibly some herbs were added. It is very earthy and not intense in aroma. As for flavor is full of roasted malts, minor sweet malt taste, weak bitter chocolate malts, and a medium level of hop bitterness. Overall a good bitter porter.

Bomber into a tulip Dark cola color with a tight light brown head. Light carvbonation showing. Nose was earthy coffee, chocolate, caramel. Nice well balanced smell. Taste was similar to nose but more slanted towards the chocolate and caramel, with the finish being the earthy coffee and bitterness. Smooth and easy to drink with the slight amount of bitterness. Medium bodied and light carbonation.

BelgianBeerGal (3203) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Traded bottle of unknown vintage. Pours very dark brown with a thick brown head and foamy lacing. Mellow aroma of dark malt and brown sugar. Flavor is slightly acidic coffee and some dark chocolate with lingering bitterness. Fine.

dammit, another example of trying to cram too much hops into a style that doesnt need it. why some american brewers feel the need to do this to every style they make is aggravating.

I had the bbl porter and really like that so I tried this right after. Six pack bottles. Poured black with light tan foam. Dark with strong, but balanced aroma. Medium with not too heavy flavors. Finish was balanced and did not stay too long on the tongue. This is a good, every day porter.

Beerenberger (1489) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and toffee. A blackish pour with a short lived tan head and moderate lacing. The taste of coffee, toffee, and hints of dark fruit, and biscuit. Bitter finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable bitter porter. Great lable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with reddish highlight and tan head that disappeared into light lacing. Aroma is chocolate and taste is similar with coffee notes. Smooth start to a slight bitter finish. Very good.
